The street date for my upcoming book Chocolate & Vicodin is February 22, 2011—exactly two months away! That’s the date that bookstores are officially allowed to start selling the book. (They can get in trouble if they put it out earlier.) But it appears that the publicity portion of the book release has already started to kick into gear. This week Publisher’s Weekly posted a positive review of CHOCOLATE & VICODIN, calling it “lively” and “entertaining.” And LibraryJournal.com recently reviewed the memoir for the BookSmack newsletter, saying I’d be “fun to meet.” (Totally true by the way.)
I don’t want the blog to become all “Chocolate & Vicodin” all the time (though that sounds like a hell of a party!). So if you want to keep up with the latest news about the book or anything I’m up to, go to news.jennettefulda.com and/or subscribe to my RSS feed there. Those announcements are also blasted onto my Facebook fan page and I’ll try to remember to Twitter about them too. You can also sign up for my email newsletter at the bottom of JennetteFulda.com which will summarize any important or upcoming news and events. Whew! Publicity is hard work. So many media streams to swim in while trying not to drown.
Also, if you see the book mentioned in the media, feel free to tell me about it. I only learned about the two press items above because people contacted me about them. I don’t automatically get notices whenever something is printed about the book. I’m looking forward to all the activity around the book release and I hope you guys enjoy reading what I spent so much time writing!
I may not blog again before the holidays, so if not, have a Happy Whatever!
